Academy Changes For U11 Boys

Gorge Soccer Association

Apologies and sorry for any inconvenience; we have had to make a time change to our U11 Boys Gorge Academy session because of mix up with field scheduling.

We will have to train earlier for the first three weeks. I know the earlier time may not work for some families but it is the best we can do to fit everyone in.

* The first three training sessions (Oct. 22/29 & Nov. 5) we will train from 5:00-6:00 pm.

* The following four training sessions (Nov. 12/19/26 and Dec. 4) we will train at our originals time of 6:00-7:00 pm.


Winter Futsal League for U7-U16 Players

Gorge Soccer Association

Gorge TD Jamie Ackinclose, Lakehill TD Dom Butcher and Saanich Fusion TD Steph Steiner have launched the USS Winter Futsal League from Nov-Feb under Jamie's United Soccer Solutions company. Essentially the league will run for 12 weeks over the winter break complementing - not conflicting with - our regular season. The league will likely be based out of St. Margaret's School for Girls gym facility.

Please check out the United Soccer Solutions Futsal website.

If you know futsal, you'll know its a technically demanding small-sided game that greatly benefits and places demands on the player (foot skills, speed, rapid decision making, etc.). Its a wonderful game/vehicle for technical development.  It is the main soccer 'game' in Brazil, even played more than its full-field relative. Messi, Ronaldo & Pele all played it as kids. We hope we can develop a supplemental futsal league to bolster player development in Victoria.

There is an early bird rate of $85/player which includes a t-shirt.  Also, if you are bringing in a team, one player is registered for free. Registration is limited.

Any questions please contact Jamie at ... headcoach@gorgesoccer.ca.


Gorge Academy - Fall Phase

Gorge Soccer Association

The Gorge Academy programs are starting up for the Fall session. We have two Academy programs: one for players, and one dedicated for keepers. For those new to Academy ages, this is an extra optional training session per week during a time that does not conflict with your team practices. There is no extra charge for participating in the Academy sessions.

Gorge Fall Academy - Players

The primary focus of our Fall program will be on individual technical skills and small sided games. Players will be grouped with like-minded and like-skilled peers. The Gorge Technical Director and the coaches from each age group will be coaching these sessions.
